About Paul Johnson

We are a married couple in our early forties, in 2013 we started to search for the perfect holiday home, what we found was so amazing we actually took the plunge and, quitting good careers, bought this beautiful old 22 acre olive farm in Northern Spain.

Paul Johnson purchased this villa in 2014

Why Paul Johnson chose Baix Ebre

After much research we chose the area of Northern Spain, and when we came to visit fell in love with Tortosa and the surrounding area. When we saw the old farm we knew instantly this was the one for us and have not looked back. Amazing views, Central to almost everything in the area, and, apart from our own home, we have this beautiful old villa to rent out exclusively to visitors.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is set in 22 acres of land with stunning mountain views. The village is just a five minute drive for all local shops and, the medieval city of Tortosa is just a 10 minute drive for larger shops, bars and restaurants.

We are 5mins to the River Ebro, which offers excellent cat fishing, also the fishing port and beachs of L'Ampolla are a 20 min drive. Barcelona and Valencia are 2, 2.5 hrs by car or train.

Superb views, idyllic location, special place

  • 5 of 5

The view as we arrived at our holiday home, set in its own valley of olives and fruit trees, was magical, with a stunning, uninterrupted sweep across the Ebro valley to the mountains. We spent a lot of time, early evening glass in hand, gazing at it from our terrace.

The villa itself is comfortable and with all mod-cons, despite being solar-powered. There are two sun-trap verandas to catch the sun at different times of the day, and two large outside dining areas with a terrific barbecue, and a very welcome pool in the heat of high summer.

Andy and Sam left us an unexpected, but much appreciated welcome pack of milk, beer and wine. They were incredibly helpful with advice on places to visit locally, and we had a brilliant two weeks exploring, though the delights of this villa made it difficult to move much.

The Delta itself is an amazing bird-watchers paradise (with flamingos!) and great restaurants. Inland there are wonderful mountain walks, or the beautiful Ebro river, perfect for swimming, fishing or canoeing..

The nearest big town, Tortosa, is beautiful and packed with historical buildings, great restaurants, cobbled streets full of bars, as well as big supermarkets, and a fabulous covered food market open every day. Near to the villa are several villages with banks and shops and restaurants.

We took our dog Daisy, and she loved the place (and the owners' dogs, who came to visit on their daily walks) too.

We will definitely be returning ... this is one of the best holidays we've had!

Views to die for!

  • 5 of 5

Great Villa two doubles and a twin single bedroom, plunge pool is perfect to cool off. Views are stunning! Andy / Paul either name will do ... perfect host ... nothing too much trouble, He checks in with you on a regular basis to see if anything is needed or if he can help in anyway .. lots of local info to hand and he organised a fabulous fishing trip on the Ebro River and a 111 pound Cat Fish was caught! Very dog friendly if you have pets on holiday. Welcome pack was appreciated, local wine, and produce from their own farm. No hesitation to rebook another time!!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to the villa and was in awe of the view.... Looking over the mountains and surprised at how peaceful and quiet it was

The villa itself was extremely clean on arrival with some welcome bits in the fridge

There is a tv, tablet and wifi, fridge, with good cooking appliances

You have 2 seperate roof terraces to catch the sun from sunrise to sunset

Andy and Sam are tremendous hosts as I know this is a new adventure for them but really made us feel welcome,

Andy checked in on us each day to ensure everything was how we wanted it and always asked if there was anything we needed

The villa sleeps 6 and is of adequate size....

The pool is Perfect to lie back on a lilo and soak up the rays

Bitem is the local village with quaint cafe, bakery, butchers and pub

Tortosa is an extremely pretty city with alot of history, certainly worth visiting!

Nearby beaches are great and Salou is only a 35 minute drive ... The nearest 'tourist' town which has a v good beach, loads of restaurants and all your gift type shops

River Ebro is quite a site, had the chance to go fishing for catfish, unfortunately drew a blank but was stunning to be on the river, basking in the heat whilst watching the Kites above hunting

All in all, if you fancy a really chilled holiday with stunning views then this is definitely a place of beauty
